[Bug] Escaping problem when creating an item from search
Closed, DuplicatePublic


I was wondering why sometimes items with funky characters turn up and now I know how to reproduce it:

Looking this part probably causing the problems:

<span class="plainlinks">[{{fullurl:Special:CreateItem|label={{urlencode:$1}}}} create a new item]</span>

Would it be as simple as getting rid of the urlencode or would something else break?

Lydia_Pintscher moved this task from incoming to ready to go on the Wikidata board.

I can reproduce this issue on Firefox 50.0 on Elementary OS 0.4. I tested on Wikidata (Mediawiki version 1.290).

  1. Enter a search with special characters
  2. Click on "create a new item"
  3. The label field will show the escaping issues
